PESHAWAR Dec 25 (TNS): Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Monday stressed the need for increased focus on the quality of education and said there cannot be real development without it.
He said this while addressing the inaugural ceremony of Muhammad Ali Jinnah Library at Islamia College Peshawar.
PM Abbasi told the gathering that no investment could be better than the one made on provision of education. Quality education is equally important as higher education, he added.
The incumbent government has made more resources available to educational institutions to impart quality education, the premier said, adding that it has made a resolve to establish at least one university in every district of the country.
Shining light on importance of education, Abbasi said education was the reason Quaid-e-Azam held sway over the hearts and minds of the people and advised the participants to adhere to the teachings of the founder of nation.
In his message on the occasion of Christmas, he said ironing out differences and curbing extremism as well as forging unity can help the nation move forward.
Accompanied by Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, he arrived in the provincial capital this morning amid tight security.
